Give dealers an incentive, that being higher allocations, if they are able to help Lotus dump the last load of Esprits. It's like in the movie Glen Garry - Glen Ross.
If the salesmen wanted the new, hot , easy to sell leads they had to 'first' sell some of the old 'dead' ones.

THE 04 Esprits have literally been flying out the doors of LCU. I think only a dozen or so left.

I, as a dealer, would have approached Martha Stewart to offer the car around. Thing is, she's a bit busy with other items right now.

I'm not sure we really want them to follow Glengarry Glen Ross. It'd be great if Lotus marketed their cars to nurses - preferably hot, single ones - but after the Esprits were sold there'd only be two Lotus dealers left in the U.S. 'cause everyone else would have won third prize.

But what do I know... I just like talking to salesmen.

This type of practice is already used by most manufacturers.

Lotus is probably forcing them down dealers throats in order to receive their Elise allocation:D

There was a rumor that Lotus forced each dealership to take one Esprit if they wanted an Elise allocation.

Newport European has two Esprits on the lot so do they get a double allocation:D

I don't forcing dealers to take them so much as it's dealers figure it's the best way to insure a decent allocation.
